It's in 'Writing R Extensions':
When all the testing is done, upload the .tar.gz file, using
`anonymous' as log-in name and your e-mail address as password, to
ftp://CRAN.R-project.org/incoming/ (note: use `ftp' and not `sftp'
to connect to this server) and send a message to CRAN at R-project.org about
it. The CRAN maintainers will run these tests before putting a
submission in the main archive.
